Why are Pulp so unpopular now?

in the current amazon chart it is at # 81. so nothing to do with any barcode error; only one new track which is easily downloadable, the fans will have all the rest of the stuff anyway, no one else wants to buy it. it's like that and that's the way it is.

there's no new remix cd to sell it like
there is with msp's and U2's,
everybody's got the singles
anyway and 'hits' is formed from
the bones of only 4 albums.
the previous socialism of the group
seems to have gone west too
what with jarvis doing ads for BT
and what not, and
the last album was proggy, part tuneless and didn't sell
despite the good reviews. like so many of those
great 90's bands (suede, blur) they're a good half
decade past the sell by date.
it's a shame though because only 2 readings ago
they were headlining, went down a storm and got the
best reviews of the festival almost everywhere.

It was in Asda's Top 75. I bought a copy for Isabel, who likes them and doesn't have any of their stuff.

Marcello your argument applies to U2's G.Hits too. The question is - why does Pulp seem only to have committed fans? Ppl who *do* have all the stuff already so don't need this. Obviously GH records are designed to catch people who remember one or two singles they liked.

With Pulp I think there's two factors stopping their Hits being big.

- Pulp became prominent on the back of Britpop, they didn't drive Britpop's popularity. They started having big hits later than Blur, Suede or Oasis, for instance. I was at a wedding reception in '96 and the DJ played Country House, most people liked it - Roll With It, the place went mental - Common People, the floor cleared. Every kid who liked Britpop liked them, but they never really crossed over I think.

- Britpop now is pretty unfashionable. Pulp and Blur were the poppiest Britpop bands - Blur came back quicker with "Song 2" and shook off ideas about their sound, but Pulp's changes of sound never really caught people's imagination so they're still associated with their disco-fied, keyboard-driven big hits. That sort of sound has very little appeal to current NME readers, who seem to all love their rock'n'roll and would probably frown on the 'compromises' they'd hear in Pulp. So they dont even get big sales from that end of the market.

Because the bastards haven't put on "Misshapes" but did put on "Sorted For Es and Wiz". Including the shitty intro.

Dom Passantino (Dom Passantino), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:00 (11 years ago) Permalink

They took too long to follow up "Different Class". I think they DID cross over, but they didn't capitalise once they'd established themselves. (Note: they only slipped up commercially, This is Hardcore was well worth the wait, artistically speaking). "This is..." possibly wasn't the most poppy album in the world, and the dark, long title track was a poor choice of single (again, speaking commercially rather than artistically), so that didn't help. They took ages to follow that one up, too, so by then their day in the sun had completely gone. I still find it hard to believe that their Greatest Hits would come in THAT low, though. A mistake, surely? Even the Bluetones did better than that...

I think JARVIS crossed over into bigtime celebrity status.

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:06 (11 years ago) Permalink

Apparently "Misshapes" was left off because it was too 'Andrew Lloyd Webber' and the group all hate it.

stephen. s (yaye), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:09 (11 years ago) Permalink

1. now, jarvis more famous as celeb rather than as part of pulp

2. britpop unfashionable, and pulp never escaped being synonymous with it

3. terrible sleeve

4. too redolent of particular era (this is point 2 again really), but they seem more tied to 95 than anyone, and, until 95 becomes popular again, they'll be unfashionable (strangely, when it does become popular again, i think they'll lag behind oasis/blur again even though both of those are less specifically tied to 95).

the strange thing about pulp 'of the moment/the moments over thing' is just how quickly it was 'over'. that moment was feb96 when they did 'something changed' on top of the pops, and it did indeed feel that something had changed. right then. that time was gone. that minute. they've seemed out of place and wrong ever since, unable to escape this period

gareth (gareth), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:15 (11 years ago) Permalink

is it over-speculating to say that when russell senior quit, they lost their "pop" element?

also, the difference with U2's GH2 is precisely that other people want to buy it - namely the ten-CDs-per-year people.

I don't recall the Best of Blur doing all that well; they certainly haven't crossed over.

The Elvis and Stones comps have done well, the Nirvana comp is doing OK, the Manics comp has sunk like a stone. Go figure.

Marcello Carlin, Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:21 (11 years ago) Permalink

"is it over-speculating to say that when russell senior quit, they lost their "pop" element?"

I think there was just a sombre, post-fame mood about "This is Hardcore", I dunno if Russel's departure had much to do with it. They didn't seem to lose their sharpness, musically, they just lost some of their fizz.

Ally (mlescaut), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:29 (11 years ago) Permalink

It's a tricky line to cross. Pulp "went weird" and flopped; Radiohead "went weird" and cleaned up.

Speculation: wonder how well greatest hits compilations by Suede or Supergrass would be selling if they were to be released now?

Marcello Carlin, Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:31 (11 years ago) Permalink

Awfully I think. Blur's G Hits at least went top 10.

My pet theory is that stuff 7 years old at any given time is at its least fashionable.

The shift from Senior to Webber as musical leader is a big deal I think - We Love Life is very much a Mark Webber album. I liked the transition but listening to the Hits comp the earlier stuff sounds a lot more focussed.

Tom (Groke), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:37 (11 years ago) Permalink

agree totally about the cover. f-ing awful isn't it ?
looks like an out-take from the 'we love life'
artwork which it probably is.

piscesboy, Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:39 (11 years ago) Permalink

Radiohead always had a rep in the mainstream as being makers of SERIOUS, MOODY music, I think. The people who bought OK Computer wouldn't have been as thrown by Kid A / Amnesiac as some think. Pulp hit the big time as a quirky, fizzy pop group.
A darker, moodier record + hesitancy to follow-up success = failure.

Reasons for commercial disaster are never cut and dried, though. There are probably hundreds of examples that go against what I've just said.

weasel diesel (K1l14n), Wednesday, 20 November 2002 14:41 (11 years ago) Permalink

um, after pulp got very popular they couldn't cope with it (it took a while to reajust). Jarvis went to a lot of parties and yes, when senior left that was a blow. I did wonder for a while whether they would come up with a follow up to 'different class'.

i felt they took too long to come back (or it certainly felt that way).

You never hear any Pulp being used in ads, soundtracks, or in TV progs. You DO hear loads of U2, Oasis, Blur, so maybe Joe Public isn't prompted to remember that they exist, other than a vague recollection of Common People.

There are too many reasons not to buy :

The Kids - Pulp too old and square
Serious Rock Fan - will take Radiohead, but Pulp too flip and awkward
Non-loyal 'music fan'(me) - has everything they want already
Real Fan - only one new track
Joe Public - not interested/not heard of/too weird
Casual music fan 30-40 CDs a year - has Common People on one of those 'Best Album ever' (or whatever they're called) Britpop comps.


My own opinion - Hardcore and Life are by far the best albums they've ever done.

A few years ago I used to go to social gatherings hosted by thirtysomething friends - middle management, IT department, just having kids or trying for them, living in satellite villages. Middle England but still voting (New) Labour. They all had "Different Class" and at some point in the evening "Common People" would appear to liven things up. That's the audience Pulp lost with "This is Hardcore".

Yes, I know. I'm sorry but I fear I have caused the end of the world with my ignorance. I don't know how it slipped my radar when I have been so dilligent. I did go and check it out, I'm not too impressed with their decision as to what are their greatest works, but I guess it's what you need to sell records??? Plus the bonus CD, there's no tracklisting on the case. I can't justify spending $20 when I have no idea what's enclosed. I might already HAVE it.

Apparently "Misshapes" was left off because it was too 'Andrew Lloyd Webber' and the group all hate it.

Funny, every time I hear that song I imagine a full-tilt all singing, all dancing bloody great stage routine with twirling parasols and grubby urchins...

The Pulp DVD will sell more than the album, overflowing as it is with all sorts of fun stuff. Hits itself won't sell much, sadly, due to many of the reasons outlined above, but mainly because Pulp never fully capitalised on their moments in the spotlight - unsurprisingly, since they're not really capitalists. I can't imagine Pulp ever allowing one of their songs to be used on an advert, for example (lest we forget, they turned down Coca-Cola when they wanted to use "Sunrise" last year).

As to Jarvis appearing on ads and stuff, I think he (rightly IMHO) sees his own image and metastar status as being totally separate from that of "Pulp" the concept, so can use it however he likes without compromising Pulp's collective image.

Me, I love the last two albums, even though they both contain a couple of stinkers and half-finished water-treading exercises. Unlike any other recent band I can think of, they both lay bare in surprisingly candid terms the band and singer's mental state at the time of recording, and that's a sign of greatness from where I'm perched. Intro's still my number one tho.

I think, in time, Pulp will become one of those critics' bands like Squeeze, forever critically lauded for lyrical ingenuity, quirky charm and odd pop suss, but never again selling the huge amounts they once did.

A...bonus, I guess: turns out someone's finally put the one 'lost' Pulp song from the mid to late eighties on YouTube, "Silence" -- this is the one that Jarvis refused to allow on the Masters of the Universe compilation and reissues since, according to this:

That features the only Fire track which hasn't been reissued: "Silence", from demos recorded in an old karate studio, written at that first rehearsal with Russell. Oh, it's so depressing, a two-note keyboard drone, someone playing one of those hunting horns you have on the living room wall and me alternately talking and screaming this story about a love affair that doesn't work out. I banned it from going on the Fire compilation, because it's terrible - I couldn't live with it being out.
